The morning after noted child prodigy Colin Singleton graduated from high school and got dumped for the nineteenth time by a girl named Katherine, he took a bath. (from the first line)
Colin Singleton always falls for girls named Katherine--and he''s been dumped by all of them. Letting expectations go and allowing love in are part of Colin''s hilarious quest to find his missing piece and avenge dumpees everywhere.
From the Publisher:
When it comes to relationships, Colin SingletonÂ's type is girls named Katherine. And when it comes to girls named Katherine, Colin is always getting dumped. Nineteen times, to be exact. On a road trip miles from home, this anagram-happy, washedup child prodigy has ten thousand dollars in his pocket, a bloodthirsty feral hog on his trail, and an overweight, Judge JudyÂ?loving best friend riding shotgunÂ?but no Katherines. Colin is on a mission to prove The Theorem of Underlying Katherine Predictability, which he hopes will predict the future of any relationship, avenge Dumpees everywhere, and finally win him the girl. Love, friendship, and a dead Austro-Hungarian archduke add up to surprising and heart-changing conclusions in this ingeniously layered comic novel about reinventing oneself.
Annotation:
John Green's young-adult novel about teen love is original, hilarious, and anagram-riddled. Freshly graduated high school senior and brilliant child prodigy Colin Singleton sets out on a road trip with his portly, wise-cracking best friend, Hassan, to escape the heartbreak of being dumped. Not only does Colin obsess about being more than just a prodigy, but he only dates girls named Katherine, and they all throw him over in the end. A fatal pit-stop in rural Tennessee transforms their desperate road trip into a transformative event involving pig-hunting, a tampon string factory, and a fiery girl named Lindsey. A 2007 Printz Honor recipient and a Kirkus Best Children's Book of 2006.

Praise

"Green's characters are quirky without having to gnaw soap or assemble a boyfriend from body parts. They're also genuine enough to counter the sweetness in this novel, in which no one but the rampaging boar really wants to hurt anyone." - Regina Marler 11/12/2006
